Dennis Bloem – Ramaphosa lied about state capture and corruption



COPE’s Dennis Bloem is challenging President Cyril Ramaphosa for not taking responsibility for state capture and corruption that was allegedly set in during his tenure as deputy president.

It was disclosed that ANC top six at that time failed to act against widespread corruption at the Passenger Rail Association of SA (Prasa).

The top 6 then were Jacob Zuma as president, Ramaphosa as his deputy, Gwede Mantashe as the secretary-general, Jessie Duarte as deputy secretary-general, Baleka Mbete as chairperson and Zweli Mkhize as treasurer-general.

“On numerous occasions, President Ramaphosa has said that he was not aware of how huge the corruption was. It is very clear that President Ramaphosa is lying to the people of the country, he was well aware of what was happening,” said Bloem.

According to Bloem, the only way the president can clear his name and save his integrity is to brave enough and equally take responsibility for the state capture and corruption and stop putting all the blame on Zuma.
